Lamppost 005 outside 23 Hungerford Rd

Reported via mobile in the Street light fault category anonymously at 21:42, Thu 24 August 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4925255.

This lamppost is directly outside my bedroom window and the light is extremely difficult to block out at night and is causing health issues with my sleep. Please could the light be moved, turned off past 9pm or at the very least dimmed because it is affecting my health and it not necessary for these to all be on all night.

  • We are sorry you are experiencing issues with glare and confirm we shall be instructing our contractors to change the lantern on column 005. The new lantern will have a shield which should reduce backward glare effectively and the lantern will also dim down.

    Our contractors will attend as soon as they can and we can add further comments here as needs be.
